When You Feel Your Best, You Worry Less

Once upon a time, I was one of those people who used to feel stressed daily.  I had a ton of responsibilities.  The 24-hours in a day weren’t enough to finish the work I had to complete.  The struggles were definitely real.  I am here to say that I feel your pain.  My health suffered because of it too.  Your health is one of the most important aspects of your daily life.  When you feel sick, it is like the whole world is going to end.  Your day-to-day tasks become an impossible mission.

This is what my mind used to look on a daily basis.  It was an endless cycle of repetitive responsibilities.  It seemed like it wasn’t affecting my body at all until I noticed I couldn’t sleep at night.  I felt tired during critical times where my mind had to be sharp.

It seems like a great balance until you realize there is no “me” time to enjoy.  We get caught in this cycle of responsibilities that the last thought on our minds is ourselves and our hobbies.  We forget the essentials of eating right and exercise which help create peace of mind.

I am here to tell you.  You need to take the time to look after your health regardless of your size, weight, and background.  

When you feel your best,You will worry less

You Worry Less 

Your physical and mental well being should be a priority in your life.  It is easier said than done though.  Once we get into the rhythm of our lives, it takes discipline to think about yourself too.  Guilt can make us feel like we can’t take a break, but the truth is, we sometimes need a break too.  Life is about enjoying the precious moments that will pass us by if we don’t blink.

What Kind of at Home Medical Services are Provided?

What Kind of at Home Medical Services are Provided?

This is a common question we receive from families searching for an alternative to nursing homes. They question what kind of services they can receive at home. What they don’t know is that home health aide services have perfected providing valuable and quality care at home. It’s almost like having a hospital or a nursing home at the convenience of your home. It’s why millions of families are opting to receive care at home. The benefits far outweigh the cons!

Nevertheless, I made a list of at home medical services families can receive today if they prefer to have medical treatments at home.

At Home Medical Services

Bathing and Dressing

There are proper ways to help a patient with bathing and dressing. A skilled professional like a caregiver or a home health aide will be more opt to assisting the patient in bathing and dressing. They can monitor hygiene specific requests. Families enjoy the convenience of their loved one receiving additional help if they need it.

Medication Monitoring

Medication monitoring is essential to care treatments especially after recovery. Forgetting to take a medicine at a particular time, can be the difference between an emergency hospital visit and a speedy recovery. The at home medical services provide families with skilled caregivers who are trained to provide care to their families.

Meal Planning and Preparation

Nutrition is crucial to health. Your food choice each day affects your health. It effects how you will feel today, tomorrow, and the future. The reason why it plays an important role is because it leads to a healthy lifestyle. A home health aide or a skilled professional understands the value of nutrition. They can provide meal planning and meal prep to patients who need the extra nutrients to stay healthy or recover. Furthermore, they can avoid feeding the patient certain foods that might make the patient feel worse!

These are important aspects to remember.

Companionship Visits

Loneliness is a horrible feeling. For example, it is a state of mind.Mental health is a serious problem in the United States. The feeling of loneliness causes people to feel empty, alone, and unwanted. These sensations can lead to more serious conditions like depression, anxiety, and sometimes suicide. A care companion gives the patient attention. They listen, give guidance, play their favorite board games, or even encourage hobbies to keep the patient active and well!

Organization of Schedules and Appointments

Doctor visits and appointments shouldn’t be skipped. After a patient leaves a hospital, they’ll be provided with specific instructions on how to manage their recovery. Normally, they will need to visit the doctor on a consistent schedule. This is where a home health aide and a caregiver come in. They can assist in reminding the patient when their scheduled appointments are. In some instances, they can transport the patient if needed.

Live-In Home Health Aide Services

This is probably the most valuable thing that in-home medical services can assist with. There are loved ones who need to be watched 24/7. A live in home health aide is with the patient always. They don’t leave their side. At any moment that the patient needs help, the home health aide is there.

The Ways Stress Ages You If You’re Not Careful

The Ways Aging Stresses Us

The past year has not easy been easy for my mother. For many of us, it isn’t always a good year. This is the reality. I’ve noticed it too. Unfortunately, stress ages us if we are not careful. While there are elements we can’t control, like the death of a loved one, there are precautions we can do to avoid being stressed.

Stress is a silent killer. It’s something we don’t realize we have until the symptoms show. I can relate. I thought stress was something I could control through “not thinking about it,” but what I found out was that it wasn’t that easy. Stress sneaks up on us. Though we might not feel stressed at the time, it builds up and eventually leads to other problems like depression or anxiety.

Emotional Distress Speeds Up Cellular Aging

Studies indicate that stress speeds up our cellular aging through a chemical. Accurately, our cells divide and are responsible for our age. Emotional distress speeds up cellular aging. Every human cell has 46 chromosomes. At a certain point, our cells lose their ability to dive further. There is something called the telomere length that marks biological age. Those who experience stressful life experiences, are linked to accelerated telemore shortening.

After a year of stress from my father’s passing, I found that I had more gray hair than the year before. My eyes were saggy and my skin rough at the touch. I’ve seen firsthand people with depression who look older than they say they are. These aging problems are reversible through meditation and proper stress management.

Job Stress Can Damage Cells

When you are going through stress, it creates that fight or flight reaction in an unrelenting way, and as a result, stress chemicals are released into the body. This is another problem with today’s society. As expenses rise, more Americans feel the pressure to work longer and harder hours. Stress can damage cells and lead to early aging.

Stress at a workplace can include emotional, physical, and psychological stress through factors we cannot control. If you find yourself in a situation where your job is causing more harm than good, consider finding something else.

Stress Can Lead to Vision and Hearing Problems

Additionally, stress increases heart rate and blood pressure. These problems can cause patients to experience vision and hearing problems. The losses may not be permanent, yet they can begin to behave and feel less like themselves.

My personal experience indicates this to be true. I found that my eyes were constantly dry. I always had 20/20 vision until I experienced unrelenting stress. My eye sight started to lose its sharpness until I changed my daily habits.

A Heartfelt Thank You To Veterans

Home Health Aides Love Graduating from E & S

This is a heartfelt thank you to Veterans. While it is a cliche thing to say, it is with genuine respect that we value your bravery, your selflessness, and your sacrifices. Your service is not what we are thanking. It is the soul behind it that we are thinking of.

It is a day where we value the fallen and current heroes. We don’t need a special holiday to remind us of their legacies. It is a day where we stop and think about what it means to the world to have courageous individuals. There is no way to envision the world without the existence of those people.

The E & S family recognizes that these people helped the world become a better place. The dedication is something to admire, respect, and more importantly honor. We are forever in your debt. The past, present, future generations thank the veterans.
